I poked around and didn't see any other lists regarding mailutils, so
I thought I'd ask here.  Please redirect me if this isn't the right

I've been looking at mailutils and had some questions:

  * If I had the time, would there be any interest in a mailutils
    guile module?  i.e. (use-modules (mailutils)).  The plan would be
    to create this module and convert guimb to just be a guile script
    that uses this module, i.e.:

      #!/usr/bin/guile -s
      (use-modules (mailutils))
      (use-modules (ice-9 optargs))
      (main (program-arguments))

    The advantage here would be that other guile scripts and programs
    using guile as an extension language could use mailutils as well.

  * Are there any plans, or is there any interest in having functions
    at the scheme level (or the C level if they don't exist already)
    that let you grab the headers and the body of a message as raw
    strings?  This is something I'd need for some scripts I was
    thinking about writing (i.e. I need to be able to get the message
    header and body verbatim -- with no modifications), and it didn't
    look like mailutils could do that at the moment.  I'm thinking of
    something like libmail-box-perl's $msg->$head->toString() and
    $msg->body->string() methods.

  * Does mailutils already allow you to pass it a string to convert it
    to a message that you can then call normal mailutils functions on?
    If not, is there any interest in that functionality (i.e. would
    patches be welcome if I had the time)?
